: is there any possibility ben bernanke and tim geithner could both be replaced? from what i have read, they both have a background or some dealings with the basics and will street. my impression is they are in bed with big banks in wall street and favor them. their policies have always favored those guys. that may be part of the reason they were never held accountable for the things that happened five in 2008. guest: there is no doubt they did work together on the tarp legislation during the financial collapse of late 2008. ben bernanke was the chairman of the federal reserve. tim geithner it was the head of the federal reserve. i cannot remember whether ben bernanke's term is coming up in 2014. there is talk that tim geithner may be the next fed chair. it is quite likely we will have a new fed chair some time during obama's second term. host: when you say chatter, is this the white house getting that out to reporters? guest: like wall street, people talk. if ben bernanke were to leave the fed, tim geithner would be a natural candidate. it would be natural he would be considered. whether he woul
was not cool on the skis. tough talk. here i am with ben willis, and we talked about the market, but the number one question, what's everybody saying about the fiscal cliff? >> new year's resolution is never to have to say those words again. >> oh, come on, what do people think? what's the reaction in the market? >> traders are tired of the hold. what you are witnessing now is political theater. the president getting on the plane, coming home early, on and on, just get it over with. that's what you are elected to do. just do your job. we're tired of it. >> pushed back into january? >> may have patch work done causing a resolution, but the market continues to say we believe it's going to happen because the fact of the matter is if it doesn't happen, the market turns ugly really fast. >> all right. there's obviously the belief something's got to happen but better be sooner than later. >> ben's got to have a better new year's resolution than that. >> i like it. that and eat more broccoli. >> he's laughing because it's the truth. >> thank you, nicole. >> i have to think of the new year's resolution
, but what about our favorite, steve moore here, what do you think? is 2013 going to turn the corner like ben bernanke and others are saying? >> i never like to bet against the american economy and there are so many spirits. and we haven't had a real recovery in four years. you get the feeling that the economy is ready to pop, but the countervailing argument everything washington is doing expansion. and i entirely agree with your previous conversation that energy and technology are just drivers of high powered growth, but the countervailing force i think follows the higher tax rates coming in 2013 and some of the regulations and obamacare are holding back business's willingness to expand and hire more workers. >> paul: not just the regulatory wave on health care, there's huge with dodd frank reform and huge pentup regulatory wave hit on energy. all kinds of rules hitting utilities and energy company. so who wins? washington or the private economy? >> well, i think, actually if you look at a couple of indicators, it's not good for at least the first half of 2013. one is business investment. bu
so with a ben benevolent spirit. >> is bush the face wants to embrace for the party's future. former political director for former h.w. bush and joining us from san diego murdock a fox news contributor. great to see both of you. let's start with you here. is this the way forward for the republican party now? the republicans took a beating. they got wailed on. the messaging was romney didn't do enough to court hispanic voters. is it really illegal immigration the problem or larger problem. >> larger problem. a report came out that looked at four battleground states. we didn't get all the conservative hispanics. you look at these hispanic voters. a lot of them tend to be pro-life. they tend to be pro-traditional marriage. they are for the bush tax cuts. at lo of them are small business people. even those folks who agree with the republican party on those issues they didn't deal with mitt romney. not just illegal immigration. are we connecting them with with our conservative policies which they agree with? >> laura: i think republicans are looking at the bush administration and thinking
? is 2013 going to turn the corner in a better direction like ben better -- bernanke and the other head chairs are saying? >> we haven't had a real recovery in four years. we really haven't. you just get the feeling that the economy is ready to pop. the argument though is everything washington is doing is holding back this expansion. that'sou the frustration investors and businesses feel. on the positive side you have the energy -- i highly agree with your conversation that technology are just drivers ofy high how perked -- high powered growth. but the force are the higher tax rates that are coming in 2013 and some of the regulation s in sew bough ma care are holding back -- in obamacare are holding back the willingness to expand and hire morene workers. >> and there is going to be a huge regulatory wave to finish out the dodd frank financial reform. there is a hugee, pinned up wave on energy. all kinds of rules hitting utilities and energy companies. so who wins? washington orng the private economy? e >> i think actually if you look at ate couple of indicators it is not good for at le
